On Saturday, Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary. Ellen tweeted a photo of a skywritten anniversary gift from her wife of six years and a caption: “Look what my wife did for our wedding anniversary. Six!”
The couple, who tied the knot in 2008, in a very private ceremony, attended only by the closest friends and family members, has made it a habit from skywriting the number of years they have spent together as a married couple.
The wedding, which took place in Los Angeles, was aired exclusively on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Both women wore Zac Posen creations and exchanged rings created by Neil Lane.
56-year-old DeGeneres and 41-year-old de Rossi have been on a bumpy road in the past year. Rumors about de Rossi’s eating disorder and spending time in rehab have added to the idea that they would not make it to the end of this sixth year.
But judging from the big smiles in the picture, we would say that they are going strong still.
Happy Sixth wedding anniversary!
